I am volunteering to be the maintainer for xxhash. This is my first
ITP, so I'm sure that I don't have everything right.

The package is currently distributed on, at least, Ubuntu and Archlinux.

The library files xxhash.c and xxhash.h are BSD licensed. The utility
xxhsum is GPL licensed.

The package compiles cleanly and all tests run successfully, without
any cygwin specific patches.

You may download the current version of the dist files from

I have some issues to resolve.

The install places files into the /usr/local tree instead of the /usr
tree. Usually I would just do "PREFIX=/ make", but that does not work,
so I'm not sure how to do this from the cygport file.

How do I change the name of the shared library to something like

Do I need the libxxhash.a file? I think I should split the package
into devel and non-dev packages..Again, I'm not sure how to do that.
Or if that is necessary.

I am currently the maintainer for expat, mingw64-i686-expat,
mingw64-x86_64-expat packages.
